As we hit the sixth night of Smitten – the longest run of a production I’ve ever been involved in on stage (well, Shifting was a six night straight run but I had the pleasure of teching the show instead) – we’re issuing a final call for tickets. Here’s the lowdown.

We opened to a house of near 60 on Sunday night, and similar again on Monday night. Since Tuesday, we’ve been operating at capacity (of which is 70) though with some slight rearrangement of the seating across Wednesday and Thursday, we’ve been able to add a few more seats to the Arts Office, bringing us closer to 80.

The box office only has 70 tickets available per night. The online sales are capped at 10 per night (we’re still in the infancy of the online ticket management side of things). So, if you do your maths you’ll see that 70 + 10 = 80. We’ve suspended the online ticket sales for the show as we’ve hit the cap on Friday night (tonight) and Saturday night (the closing night). We’ve also hit the cap at the box office for tonight (Friday), so, here’s what we’re doing.

  • You call to the box office for a ticket for tonight / tomorrow night.
  • If we’re out of tickets, you’ll get added to a waiting list or advised of the returns queue.
  • Across the day we’re ringing everyone who has a reserved ticket but has not yet collected the ticket. Reserved tickets need to be collected 24 hours before the performance or they can be resold.
  • If someone tells us they can’t go, or they haven’t collected their ticket by 7:50, those tickets will be released to the returns queue on a first come, first served basis.
  • With doors opening at 7:30pm and seating from 7:40pm, if you wish to get in line for the returns for the show, we advise you to be there at 7:30pm.
  • Also, while we’ll be locking the doors by 8:05pm at the latest and latecomers will not be admitted until the interval, and only if they are valid ticket holders.

So to the near 300 people or so who have seen Smitten in Kilkenny already this week, we really hope that you’ve enjoyed the show. If you haven’t gotten your ticket yet and want in on the action, you’ll have to move quickly! Once the show finishes on Saturday, so too does our residency here at No. 76. For those of you who have tickets for tonight’s show, we’ll see you from 7:30pm and if you need any more persuading, check out this review from The Kilkenny Reporter.

The tickets for Smitten have just arrived in No. 76 waiting to be sold to the public! They’re nice and pink and smaller than usual (we modelled them on the cinema tickets from the old Regent cinema here in Kilkenny) and they can be bought for the princely sum of €12.

However, if you buy tickets for the opening night on Sunday June 26th, they’ll only cost you the knock down price of €8.

As usual with our In The Future When All’s Well shows, there are only 70 tickets per night and like the last two shows, it is likely they will sell out quickly!

So why not pop into the Arts Office now and pick them up? Alternately, you can make a booking with Niamh on 056 – 7794138.

Smitten runs from Sunday June 26th – Saturday July 2nd at 8pm nightly.

We’re happy to announce that physical tickets (as in the super awesome printed tickets disguised cleverly as party invites) for Shifting are now on sale and are available to reserve or collect in person at 76 John Street.

Reservations can be made by phone to 056-7794138 for every performance date except Monday April 18th. For the opening night of the show we’re inviting youth groups, younger theatre goers and students to avail of a special €5 ticket (please don’t be offended if we ask for ID). These special tickets are only available to buy in person. They won’t be online and cannot be reserved over the phone. You can pick them up here at the Arts Office, or on the door on the Monday night of the show.

If you can’t get to town and would rather order tickets online, you can do so here and have your tickets emailed to you immediately on purchase. Tickets purchased online include a €1 booking charge.

As the old ads on the telly say, “Don’t delay, book today!” But seriously, given the unprecedented demand for tickets for Scratcher in February, you would be well advised to book without delay.

Tickets for The Devious Theatre Company’s production of Scratcher at No. 76 John Street are now on sale at the Arts Office, priced €12. Tickets will be available for purchase from 9:30am – 5pm Monday to Saturday.

Scratcher opens at No. 76 on Tuesday February 22nd, running 8pm nightly to Saturday February 26th. Latecomers will not be admitted until a suitable break in the performance, tickets cannot be exchanged for other dates.

Parental advisory: This show contains strong language throughout.

Tickets are already on sale online via and are limited to 70 tickets per performance so get them while you can! Tickets cannot be reserved in advance without payment and a limited number may be available on the night. Please note that ticket sales online carry a small booking charge. If you’re buying tickets online, your tickets will be mailed to you as soon as your payment has been processed online. Please print off tickets to bring with you on the night.

But the most important thing is that tickets are very much on sale. Come and be a part of the first major theatrical performance at No. 76 John Street!
